Mapping Shakespeare : An exploration of Shakespeare's worlds through maps Hardback
William Shakespeare's lifetime (1564-1616) spanned the reigns of the last of the Tudors, Elizabeth I and the first of the Stuart kings, James I and the changing times and political mores of the time were reflected through his plays.
This beautiful new book looks at the England in which Shakespeare worked through maps and illustrations that reveal the way that he and his contemporaries saw their land and their place in the world.
It also explores the locations of his plays and looks at the possible inspirations for these and why Shakespeare would have chosen to set his stories there.
